I refer to your front page headline - A double roundabout at Cabstand may be the solution to Portishead's continuing - and increasing - traffic problems.Well! A double roundabout! How original! So the highways department have come up with this amazing new idea! And so quickly too! And only four years since 2003; two well-supported protest demonstrations; countless written and verbal representations to them; the intervention of Conservative MP Dr Liam Fox; the formation of action groups; endless letters in all local papers; the chief topic of discussion whenever two or three are gathered together in Portishead.It is so very comforting to know that we who are not clever enough to be highways department officials or to design traffic systems costing little short of £1,000,000 can relax, safe in the knowledge that all our little problems rest in these supremely capable, understanding, approachable, receptive and, above all, speedy hands.How extremely lucky we are.Judith Carr - Slade Road, Portishead
